Cape Cod Travel Notes (7/7/20)

Herring Cove beach, where are National Parks card grants us complementary access–and saves us $25. We walk the length of the beach toward the Racepoint lighthouse. While we don’t reach it, Mira gathers yet more stones.

A failed wine pickup at the Salty Marsh leads to a quick purchase at nearby Turo Vineyard. Our leftovers from the Lobster Part have the perfect complement, a lighthouse-shaped bottle filled with a white-zinfindel-tasting Cape Cod Blush.

A mediocre dinner at Captain’s Choice, where I order Fish and Chips, at last. Another walk up and down Commercial Street in Provincetown. Dark Chocolate bars and fudge for me, ice cream for them, the spectacle of Shop Therapy.
